->''Soon we are breathless, sweaty and laughing. After a while the style of the music changes--a crooner with a slow beat--but it doesn’t matter because I am too dizzy from spinning round and laughing to continue. I hook my arms about Lochan's neck and collapse against him. I notice the damp hair sticking to his neck and inhale the smell of fresh sweat. I expect him to pull away and return to his physics now that our moment of silliness is over, but to my surprise he just puts his arms around me and we sway from side to side.''

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' shows that Dexter and Dee-Dee's parents met in college, when Dad was helping Mom work on getting over her SuperOCD. At one point they go to a dance together, and when this situation crops up, Dad helps Mom through it by presenting her with her trademark rubber yellow gloves.

When BoyMeetsGirl at a party or a club, and music (often performed by a live band) is playing, the next number that comes up ''will'' be a slow dance. Usually, it's a ContrivedCoincidence, but GenreSavvy characters will make sure beforehand to tell the band to make it a slow dance at the right moment.

* "No. 1 Party Anthem" by Music/ArcticMonkeys (from the album ''Music/{{AM}}'') plays with this. The title itself indicates that the song will be a dance party record, though this is a BaitAndSwitch. It also makes fun of the fact that everything aligns properly for the narrator in the song to meet the girl, even though she's clearly egging him on to talk to her and dance with her.

* This was referenced in ''TheTomorrowSeries'' - Lee is telling Ellie about the first time they danced together, which she doesn't even remember; they were at a school dance and he asked her to dance during a slow song, hoping that they could be close and intimate and romantic, but because of the time it takes for him to ask her, they end up dancing to "Convicted Of Love", which isn't especially intimate and romantic.

* ''Literature/Forbidden'': First homework, which leads to procrastinating/taking-a-break, which leads to salsa dancing, and then the song the radio plays after the salsa is a slow, crooning song. DanceOfRomance ensues.

to:

* ''[[Literature/ElementalMasters Phoenix and Ashes]]'': When Reggie and Eleanor step onto the dance floor, the band not only switches to a slow waltz, but wraps up the music as soon as Reggie needs to take a break from dancing. Probably justified; Reggie is still recovering from a leg injury, and ''can't'' dance fast dances or for very long. If he didn't warn the band ahead of time, his godmother (who hired them) most likely would have.
